Why, hello friends.

Whenever I attempt to state a catchy sentence, it comes off as cheesy, so maybe with rhetorical thinking, my lack-of-originality-opening-sentence is enough to trigger you to stay here. Maybe?

Yes.

So, welcome! I'm just a fifteen-year-old girl who happens to love fashion. A lot. Unfortunately, I am a victim of a uniform-wearing school. If you have been stuck in the cloud of uniformity then you will understand what I mean by saying that I'm ecstatic to finally be able to wear my clothing of choice, every day. Because it's summer! Here, you will see what a young, small-town Canadian girl flaunts on a day-to-day basis.

Besides being a young girl living in a town of nothing-ness, what sets me apart from most bloggers? Well, I guess it would have to be that I am a huge bargain buyer. As in $5 shirts and jeans. As in $20 is quite a bit to spend on an article of clothing. I find it thrilling to find a good deal on an arguably ugly (according to my mum) garment and transform it into a fabulous outfit. I'm a self proclaimed "frugalista." Sorry, that's just me.

Below are the outfits I've been wearing the past two days.

Looks like a mugshot, no?
(Vest - Pacific Mall $15, Beige Blouse - Value Village $6, Floral Shirt - H&M $10, Belt - H&M $12, Shorts - Value Village $3, Tights - H&M $14, Boots - Vintage $30)
Being a frugalista and all, I must share my deals. I'm sorry, it's tacky, I know. And yes, I'm on a H&M overload. My bad, will try better.
I went to the mall. This man gave me a once over, stared at my tights, and proceeded with an evil glare. I giggled.

Action shot? Yeah, I'm cool.


I forgot to take pictures of my shoes - they were yellow jellies. Don't worry, you'll be seeing them a lot.
(Sweater - Value Village $6, Belt - Pacific Mall $10, Skirt - Handmade, Ne
cklack - Forever 21 $12, Bracelets - Forever 21 $6, Ring - Bitter:Sweet $18)
I went to a birthday party for my mum's friend's daughter and there were a lot of elderly women. Very adorable. This cute one shared to me that they wore similar clothing "back then." I suppose it does seem very 1950s. Oh well.
NOTE: Dad enjoys bragging about his "frugalista" daughter. Be careful when he wants to introduce you to people.

Well, there it is. My very first post; how exciting! I hope you didn't get bored. If you did, please don't tell me :). I hope you enjoyed yourself mildly. If you did, please do tell me :). Oh yeah, thanks so much for coming and come again. Leave a comment? :)

Yes, please.

P.S. Wow, picture quality sucks. I'll work on that.
